Surrounded by the crystal-clear, ice-age lakes at the gates of Berlin, Anja Meiners finds inspiration for distinct, contemporary custom fonts.
She lives in the tranquil surroundings of Brandenburg with family (but without a dog), while she realizes her ideas together with Ralph du Carrois in the hectic and frenetic Friedrichshain area of Berlin. The duo, known as bBox Type, are a sought-after partner for international brands such as ZDF, Cisco, TERN or Autodesk for their design of exclusive custom fonts. They are also responsible for the popular Fira Sans for Mozilla in cooperation with Erik Spiekermann and Team.
As well as a flair for corporate fonts, the communication designer has a talent for organising, for example at the monthly Typostammtisch Berlin, for which she also loves to write passionately. Her passion for writing is also reflected in her subjective observations on how children learn.
Anja is very good at listening, but also at ignoring if it serves progress. She likes to think and to think outside the box. She is not yet satisfied with the quality of her feminist side, but it’s on her agenda for her thirties.
